Both the new South Pole Station (the large grey building), and the old South Pole Station (the half-buried geodesic dome) can be seen in this panorama. You can see the ceremonial pole surrounded by flags and the true geographic South Pole about 100 yards away (see snapshots...)

    Sorry, I could not geocode this pan because the South Pole is not accessible in Google Earth! Probably not necessary since we all know the latitude is -90 degrees and longitude is meaningless (choose one!)
